I NEED YOU TO HEAR ME OUT FOR A MINUTE
This is Laura, before and after her ex-boyfriend stabbed her 15 times and left her not only traumatized but with lifelong physical consequences.
Laura was having a night out when she was approached by her ex and almost killed; he was convicted for attempted murder. When he left his home with the knife in his hands, he had every intention of killing her. It’s a miracle she survived.
BUT WHY AM I POSTING THIS?
Because now, after ONLY TWO MONTHS IN PRISON AND THREE MONTHS IN REHAB, HER ATTACKER IS BASICALLY FREE.
YES. HE’S BEEN GRANTED PERMISSION TO BE UNDER HOUSE ARREST IN HIS PARENTS’ HOME, WHILE SHE NEEDS TO HAVE BODYGUARDS EVERYWHERE SHE GOES.
THIS IS ITALIAN JUSTICE, Y’ALL.
WOMEN KEEP DYING AND DYING AND DYING AND ALL WE CAN DO IS RELEASE MURDERERS INSTEAD OF PUNISHING THEM AS THEY DESERVE.
I’m in a fucking RAGE and I don’t even care if I make typos because I haven’t been this angry in a long time.
But you know what the saddest thing is? That there are people who are actually shaming her for speaking up and telling her she’s an idiot because she “should’ve known better”.
I get it now: if we’re killed it’s our fault because we weren’t careful enough; but then, if we’re too suspicious, we’re basically feminazis who judge people before knowing them. WE CAN’T WIN.
Please share this story and raise awareness for this poor woman. This is her facebook page in case you want to leave her a message. There’s not a petition yet, but if there is I’ll let you know asap.
